ComplexInsight's curator insight, April 22, 2013 4:47 PM

Mapping molecular motions -- the "magic" of chemistry revealed. Despite the enormous number of possible arrangements of atoms during a structural transition, such as occurs with changes in charge distribution or chemical processes, the interconversion from one structure to another reduces to a few key types of motions. This enormous reduction in dimensionality is what makes chemical concepts transferable from one molecule to another and has enabled chemists to synthesize nearly any molecule desired, for new drugs to infusing new material properties. This is a still image from a movie that gives a direct atomic level view of this enormous reduction in complexity. The specific trajectories along three different coordinates, as highlighted in the movie, are shown as projections (right view) on a cube. The key atomic motions can be mapped on to three highly simplified coordinates -- the magic of chemistry in its full atomic splendor. (Credit: Lai Chung Liu, University of Toronto)

PhD Scholarships in Complex Systems @Sydney_Uni

Funding is available for applicants interested in carrying out fundamental and applied research in the field of complex systems. The research will involve theoretical work as well as computer simulations. It will aim to discover fundamental connections between information-theoretic and statistical-mechanical approaches to self-organisation, while investigating a variety of topics in nonlinear critical phenomena, with particular focus on information dynamics during phase transitions. 

The PhD will be supervised by Prof. Mikhail Prokopenko. The applicant will join the Complex Systems Research Group (CSRG) at The School of Civil Engineering – The University of Sydney. The CSRG group comprises ten academics, and has wide collaborations across the University, Australia, and internationally. It is a vibrant, world-leading group in the fields of guided self-organisation and critical phenomena forecasting.

...

The scholarship also includes covering the fees payable by international students.

Entropy | Special Issue : Information Theoretic Incentives for Cognitive Systems

In recent years, ideas such as "life is information processing" or "information holds the key to understanding life" have become more common. However, how can information, or more formally Information Theory, increase our understanding of life, or life-like systems?

Information Theory not only has a profound mathematical basis, but also typically provides an intuitive understanding of processes, such as learning, behavior and evolution terms of information processing.

In this special issue, we are interested in both: a.) the information-theoretic formalization and quantification of different aspects of life, such as driving forces of learning and behavior generation, information flows between neurons, swarm members and social agents, and information theoretic aspects of evolution and adaptation and b.) the simulation and creation of life-like systems with previously identified principles and incentives.

Topics with relation to artificial and natural systems:

information theoretic intrinsic motivationsinformation theoretic quantification of behaviorinformation theoretic guidance of artificial evolutioninformation theoretic guidance of self-organizationinformation theoretic driving forces behind learninginformation theoretic driving forces behind behaviorinformation theory in swarmsinformation theory in social behaviorinformation theory in evolutioninformation theory in the braininformation theory in system-environment distinctioninformation theory in the perception action loopinformation theoretic definitions of life

Entropy | Special Issue : Information Processing in Complex Systems

All systems in nature have one thing in common: they process information. Information is registered in the state of a system and its elements, implicitly and invisibly. As elements interact, information is transferred and modified. Indeed, bits of information about the state of one element will travel—imperfectly—to the state of the other element, forming its new state. This storage, transfer, and modification of information, possibly between levels of a multi level system, is imperfect due to randomness or noise. From this viewpoint, a system can be formalized as a collection of bits that is organized according to its rules of dynamics and its topology of interactions. Mapping out exactly how these bits of information percolate through the system could reveal new fundamental insights in how the parts orchestrate to produce the properties of the system. A theory of information processing would be capable of defining a set of universal properties of dynamical multi level complex systems, which describe and compare the dynamics of diverse complex systems ranging from social interaction to brain networks, from financial markets to biomedicine. Each possible combination of rules of dynamics and topology of interactions, with disparate semantics, would reduce to a single language of information processing.

Topological Matter out of Equilibrium

Focus Workshop — 27 - 29 March 2014

Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems

Dresden, Germany

 

Much of the work on non-equilibrium statistical mechanics has relied on the notion of a local order parameter,  absent in topological phases. Conversely, studies of topological phenomena have focused on equilibrium and ground-state properties. The intersection of these fields remains largely uncharted territory.

This workshop brings together theorists from both groups, as well as experimentalists studying dynamical phenomena in a variety of systems, covering topics such as topological phenomena in driven systems, hydrodynamic descriptions of phases with emergent gauge fields,
ultrafast and inelastic spectral probes of quantum matter, the development of numerical methods, and finally potential experiments in the solid state and ultracold atomic gases.

Exact Complexity: The Spectral Decomposition of Intrinsic Computation

We give exact formulae for a wide family of complexity measures that capture the organization of hidden nonlinear processes. The spectral decomposition of operator-valued functions leads to closed-form expressions involving the full eigenvalue spectrum of the mixed-state presentation of a process's epsilon-machine causal-state dynamic. Measures include correlation functions, power spectra, past-future mutual information, transient and synchronization informations, and many others. As a result, a direct and complete analysis of intrinsic computation is now available for the temporal organization of finitary hidden Markov models and nonlinear dynamical systems with generating partitions and for the spatial organization in one-dimensional systems, including spin systems, cellular automata, and complex materials via chaotic crystallography.
